Mercer All State Auditions Boot Camp - October 25th Last Changed
2014-09-10
   

The instrumental faculty at Mercer University and I would like to invite you and your students to spend Saturday, October 25, 2014 with us to focus on assisting your students in their GMEA All-State audition preparations.  As you know, this is an important event in the students’ musical training and that of your local high school band.  We will devote this day to assist your students in everything from how to handle performance anxiety the day of the audition to innovative musical interpretations of the lyrical etude.  The morning session will be devoted to performance anxiety, interpretation of the etude, and developing proficiency in performing the major scales.   After they return from lunch, we will hold mock auditions so they can try out some of the points addressed in the morning session.    The professor for their instrument will be able to give them on-the-spot advice on ways to improve their overall performance in preparation for their first round audition in December.

 

Our schedule for the day will be as follows:

 

9 am – Welcome, Faculty Intros, Clinic on Performance Anxiety

 

9:25 am – Master Classes begin

 

11:30 am -  Lunch on your own at Mercer Cafeteria or Mercer Village

 

12:45 – 3 pm -  Return to same location for Mock Auditions

 

We will have Mercer students assisting throughout the day to show the students around and provide directions to the various lunch options.  The fee for the entire day is $25.00 per student and includes a free “Boot Camp” T-shirt.  Students will need to apply online at:   http://music.mercer.edu/camps/bootcamp/

To submit their application and mail in the payment to the address included on the application.  Our application/payment receipt deadline is Friday, October 15th.

 

We would also invite any of your students to consider auditioning at Mercer in your senior year as a Music Major or for a Band Scholarship if they plan to major in another field.  Students can visit our website:   music.mercer.edu for additional information on the application process.  Audition dates are Dec. 6, 2014; Jan. 24, Feb. 21 and Mar. 21, 2015.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Douglas Hill, Professor of Music
Director of Instrumental Ensembles and
